POKERSTARS LAUNCHES MOBILE VER. FOR iOS & ANDROID PLATFORMS

Postby DM101 » Sat Apr 21, 2012 8:49 pm

The world’s most popular online poker room, PokerStars, is now available on the world’s most popular mobile devices.

PokerStars Mobile is now available to download and play on a wide range of smartphone handsets and tablets, including Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPad Touch, as well as many Android phones and tablet computers. The poker game app will enable players across the United Kingdom (excl. Northern Ireland) to play both free and real money games on their mobile device at any time.

The trend towards mobile gaming has increased in recent years, as 43% of UK mobile users now have smartphones, according to the 2011 Netsize Guide from Gemalto. Today, there are 25,338,700 smartphone connections and 780,000 tablet PC connections in the UK, and as the market segment grows (expected to surpass 50% this year) so does the demand for great games that are optimized for these increasingly sophisticated devices.

PokerStars Mobile is more than just the migration of the existing PokerStars game product to the mobile platform,” said Jeffrey Haas, PokerStars Director of New Platforms. “It’s an intentional product designed specifically for the form factors of mobile and tablet devices, and the different ways people play games on them. This is the best authentic poker experience available for mobile devices today.”

Mobile features

PokerStars Mobile offers Texas Hold’em, Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo games for real and play money, and players can choose to participate in their favourite multi-table tournaments, sit & go’s and ring games. All mobile players will join the full PokerStars global player pool, with no separation between mobile and desktop players – so you can find the game you want, at the stakes you want, whenever you want it! Just press the ‘Play Now’ button in the app to join the action!

Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree said: “PokerStars Mobile is going to transform where and when I play poker – I now have access to the biggest tournaments and all my favourite cash games, even when I’m not in front of my computer. I plan to play all the upcoming UKIPT events and will now be able to play some poker when travelling to or from a tournament.”

One unique aspect of the PokerStars Mobile offering is the pioneering optimization of the multi-tabling user experience for mobile, allowing players to easily join several tables at the same time, with intelligent auto-switch technology and ‘flick navigation’ to ensure that mobile players never miss a hand.

Just like the desktop software, the PokerStars Mobile game lobby has filters that allow players to find all of the available games quickly, along with player and tournament search functions. Players will also earn VPPs (VIP Player Points) and FPPs (Frequent Player Points) in the same way and at the same rate as desktop players.

How to play


Existing PokerStars account holders should go to http://www.pokerstarsmobile.com to gain access to the PokerStars Mobile app download link, while new players need to visit here, download the PokerStars software to their desktop and create an account, before downloading the PokerStars app to their mobile device.

No you can't search for Home games for now, but LWPS qualifiers u can search the tourney ID and register it.

So there is no excuse to miss LWPS qualifier as you can play when you are on the move now ;)
